of the last people to see them before they entered the cave. i cried when i heard about the boys from my shop i saw them practicing on saturday they came over and snacks and soft drinks when i asked why so much they said they were off to the cave this is the road that leads up to the mouth of the cave in the hive of search and rescue operations now for the first time in days the generators are running and the pumps are working i don't know if the search also continues in the hills and jungle above the cave complex fissures and chimneys or downward tunnels are being explored and surveyed workers looking for any way to get into the cave beyond the flooded sections to look for the boys or any sign or clue of where they might be. with water again draining from the large mouth of the cave there's hope that the divers can again continue with their push farther into the dark and muddy labyrinth scott harder al-jazeera ride. the man accused of a mass shooting at

would have thought of something like this. the gazette is a community paper a forum for everything from local politics to school sports they're the only ones that are going to care about your kids' sports goods and you know you and i just it's those things the board of my community right represented in this paper and representative those jealous police say the lone suspect is from the community jared rameses is now jailed without bail in facing five counts of murder the thirty eight year old had lost a defamation lawsuit against the paper after it published a story about him stocking a former classmate police say afterwards rameses wanted revenge in may of thirteen we did have a situation where online frightening comments were made it was discussed at the capitol because that did not wish to pursue criminal charges. there was a fear that doing so would exacerbate an already flammable situation police say
ramesses attacked the newspaper armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades a search of his home revealed more evidence of the planned attack us president donald trump has previously called the news media the country's worst enemy but offered his condolences journalists like all americans should be free from the fear of being violently attacked. well doing their job. the community with the paperwork. by the hour. that. is one with very few words this new blank opinion page published in the capital does that with a simple sentence today we are speechless. al-jazeera and our listener let. us can make a general motors is warning that trade tariffs on imported vehicles could lead to the isolation of american businesses from the global market g.m. has told the u.s.
commerce department the tariffs could force the company to downsize putting thousands of jobs at risk that contrasts with the trumps of trumpet ministrations argument the tariffs on imported vehicles would protect u.s. industry the company which makes some of its vehicles for the u.s. market in mexico and canada also warned that tariffs could hike prices and reduce sales scott is a senior economist and director of trade and manufacturing at the economic policy institute he says the tariffs could actually boost domestic production. the terrorists are going to be costly. and they may be particular costly for general motors on the other hand they also may lead to an increase paradoxically in auto production in the united states g.m. has proven itself unable to make automobiles in particular they do fine making trucks and s.u.v.s but they can't make automobiles that's what they're for the
talking about putting in tariffs on. but what we've seen in the past when the u.s. imposes trade restraints we did this in nineteen eighties on all imported autos especially those coming from japan those those other producers simply shifted production to the united states that would be the sensible response so us as a whole may gain even if general motors loses as a result of these tariffs canada has hit back at the united states of a steel and any many of ties with twelve billion dollars in return a tree measures on american goods canada's plan will take effect from next week and include tariffs on u.s. imports like you will get coffee and toilet paper. canada has no choice but to retaliate with a measured perfectly reciprocal dollar for dollar response and that is what we are doing i cannot emphasize enough they regret with which we take these counter
measures we are acting very much in store of not in anger but the us terrorist leave town it in no choice but to defend our industries our workers and our communities and i can assure you that we will maintain the firm resolve to do so people in mexico will head to the polls on sunday to choose the next president the front runner under as manuel lopez obrador is designed to reverse decades of decline and poverty in rural areas but as john holden reports now from the state of michoacan it'll be a tough pledged. fulfill. the mix can countryside decimated but poverty and empty but migration over decades. is one of the aging population of small scale phone is struggling to compete with industrial scale operations in the world the mexico and the u.s. almost all that i know i produce grains but not money he says. in many communities
the young have either left or turned to more lucrative benches. they sell drugs they kidnap they live well for a few days and then they get killed just next to my house or there was head of a kidnapping. this man promises to change that presidential front runner andres manuel lopez obrador has made the neglected mix can country side a campaign priority. he said here we're focused government support from large industrial producers to smaller farms help them get quality seeds technological know how better access to loans and the guaranteed minimum price for their crops it's all part of an ambitious plan for mexico to produce its own food. they're buying everything abroad that we could grow in mexico that's going to start . in the past there were incredibly strong ties between
mexicans and the land this is the birthplace of corn itself but it's a different country now daming with a booming urban population and the global market the question is if it's really possible or even worth the cost of resuscitating this sector. even lopez obrador team says the wholesale change he promises will be impossible one of been a straight. and agricultural economist who in general support the plan of question dave price guarantees for individual farmers and in particular in forcing home grown food and carry a steep cost for authorities and consumers is because when testing vaguer that in consequence it's going to be very expensive for the government and mexican taxpayers that. promise themselves seem split between those two banking on a ruling party which has given them just enough to survive and those like
a year or more voting in the hope of change john homan how does it make to account . a spacecraft that's taken off from cape canaveral in the u.s. is said to be the last of its kind is the private company space x. is resupplying the international space station as part of a nasa mission we have to pay those says it's the last time that it will use this type of rocket it will now focus on producing rockets that can be re-used after returning from space. good to have you with us adrian finnegan here in doha the top stories here on al-jazeera more than one hundred refugees and migrants are missing feared drowned after their boat capsized off the west coast of libya the bodies of three young children have been recovered at least sixteen people survived.
there were one hundred twenty people on board on our way different broke a wooden piece pierced it and then the boat started sinking and the water started to rise everyone died women children elderly people mean all of them died. i was forced to get on board families with children were miserable conditions it was full of about one hundred twenty two hundred fifty people it was very crowded the conductor could not even see in front of them. the free syrian army says that a temporary ceasefire is in effect in southern syria the truce comes as the un refugee agency warns the number of displaced people in data has tripled to one hundred sixty thousand in the past five days there's been intense fighting in the ten day offensive by government and russian forces a cease fire deal to end south sudan's forward a half year civil war has come into force president salva kiir and rebel leader. the agreement on wednesday it calls for the forming of
a transitional government within four months gaza's health minister says that two people including a thirteen year old boy have been killed by israeli gunfire the boy was reportedly shot in the head during the latest protest on the border with israel more than three hundred palestinians were injured. at least two soldiers and says and a civilian have been killed in an attack on a military base in central mali the compound houses the headquarters of the g. five task force made up of soldiers from mali. chad and mauritania. u.s. carmakers general motors is warning that trade tariffs on imported vehicles could lead to the isolation of american businesses from the global market g.m. has told the u.s. commerce department that tariffs could force the company to downsize putting thousands of jobs at risk that contrasts with the trumpet ministrations argument that tariffs on imported vehicles would protect u.s. industry those they have lots more news on al-jazeera after inside story next.
the world almost ten years after those words were uttered by women the situation could barely be more hundreds of sheltering in camps and having fled what rights groups have described as atrocities by myanmar's military. page a more of the international committee of the red cross has visited nine months walk onstage where the violent crackdown happened now while the government is going to start repair treating the had to tour the villages they abandoned but more told al jazeera that he doesn't think how that's possible at least in the short term for the i.c.r.c. this is still and is at the present moment first and foremost an emergency operation a lot of people have been affected from all the communities and we need also to have even stronger support and facilities from all the authorities in myanmar to be able to operate and to expand our operations the reconsolidation of the
communities the bringing back of minimal safety and security for people there is is a tall order in the. work of many of the actors of many of the communities as well so we are probably looking at the long term and medium term perspective i don't think that we have yet conditions conducive to large scale return we'll need security arrangements which are embraced by the communities and this is again a political task of this key stakeholders in the me and mark. we certainly appreciate the support that we have for our humanitarian work and we certainly would appreciate if others would join us in a few because again we do believe that this is still an emergency operation where
a lot of food medical assistance basic assistance is needed for the population stows who are there into those who eventually will come home. well let's bring in our guest flower engineer that we have turned ken president. in the u.k. is. organization matthew smith is and calling them poor he's the co-founder and chief executive officer of forty five rights that's a nonprofit human rights organization based in southeast asia and joining us from barcelona is robert templer founder and director of the higher education alliance for refugees a very warm welcome to all of you mr turn ken i'm going to start with you despite the reservations from the red cross there is more and more talk the talk about the repair tradition of some seven hundred thousand revenge it continues but how many of them want to return to myanmar and do they have a choice. as far as i know
i've been i been with the top three times to bangladesh since august two thousand and seventeen you know the big team of the reviewed is you know they told me before the i returned they want to see justice and because the daughter has been raped the our father for our brothers been slow to act in front of them and there should run been bond alive that is what they told me you know what we have to point out here is they want to return of called the holy land. before they are it on their want to see this situation need to be where more than five hundred thousand ruling or if people in our history right now they want to see the situation need to be recalled and i the them and the citizenship and access to health care to a degree. and says to the a business you know a still restriction are there and on top of that where they were written this is
the question because the. village has been bulldogs and you know. what do you want to return prison camp this is very clear response from there if you do these big teams when i met them all of those points and greater detail but i want to put your last question to matthew smith in kuala lumpur what would these refugees these people from myanmar be going back to given that the houses villages have been burnt to the ground and rock kind build this have already been settled and some of the land that's right elizabeth the situation in northern rakhine state right now hasn't really changed the memoir authorities haven't really made the fundamental changes that are needed in order to ensure a safe and dignified return and to ken is absolutely right the villages have been burned. there is tremendous uncertainty about protections for anybody in northern
rakhine state right now who is muslim and particularly for those who are ranger. so this is this is a big concern you know at this point. there's there's nothing really on the immediate horizon that would suggest any sort of refugee return is tenable mr temple or do we know what the actual terms of the agreements between the un and the government of myanmar between the government's bond that they have and myanma. very very transparent. and maybe even a request to. take a chance. or will retain. effective security. protection.
so the little. man with. the really. very dangerous situation well i want to look more now at how we've got here at how the un is describing the world's fastest growing refugee crisis the u.n. calls it a began with an offensive by myanmar's army in august last year the military said it was responding to attacks by a group but the u.n. says it became a campaign of ethnic cleansing seven hundred thousand one hundred fled their homes most of them now in camps in neighboring bonn that there are doctors without borders believes six thousand seven hundred others were killed in the first month of violence and this international says what happened was systematic organized and ruthless and says culpability reaches the military's top ranks the reports of rapes
looting and that is the real hunger a muslim minority in myanmar and the long being denied citizenship and basic human rights by the government which for god's them as illegal immigrants mr punkin let me come to you now with the latest report by amnesty international that we've mentioned they have named thirteen top military personnel who they think should be tried at the international criminal court for war crimes including rape forced starvation how likely do you think that is that they will go to the international criminal court. yeah we have to see of course yes that is right. especially if the main online senior dinner me online and other top they've been involved of course this is not a suddenly happen is quite systematic and you know what we have to see here is.
the secret consul must run for international criminal court that is one point and unfortunately we have not seen that my strong of wise from security council members you know even you know u.k. is quite they are not strongly telling about it and you know of course russia and china they are there but we have not seen quite seriously about it you know the thing is we have to look at you know it's been already more than eight months now and it's not only. korea and china other ethnic minorities been you know facing this seriously right violation other parts of burma you know this impunity going on this is time right this is right time international community must support ice israel farland security calls mosques are far to the hague to burma is military
and by his government including who are complicit in the genocide against that's what i can see mr smith just today we've heard from the chinese government china's top diplomat saying that they think that myanma is ready to take back the refugees how likely is it that china will support any u.n. security council action that would refer the government of myanmar to the international criminal court given that they are a key supporter of the government of. yeah that's a great it's an important question elizabeth and right now the u.n. security council member states should really be doing everything in their power and that includes in their bilateral relationships with china to essential just get china to step aside and let justice run its course i mean no one's really asking anything of any action from china with regard to the situation really the the ask
is for china to just step aside and let you have the u.n. security council refer the situation to the international criminal court for too long the diplomatic community has sort of rested on this notion that it's simply impossible because of china and i think if we have to get to the point where u.n. member states regard that as completely unacceptable and they use the political leverage that they use you know to ink other deals with with the government of china they need to use that type of leverage towards justice and human rights and we do think it is possible and it's as mr tune can said it's absolutely essential right now and mr template is it possible to sort of circumvent china and even myanmar on this because the international criminal court right now is looking at whether it can try myanmar for the crime deportation even though it's not a member state i mean can the i.c.c. get around that and do they have the will to do was. well to
clear the room almost. there is a strong interest in the r.c.c. . africa missing in this case. and they would like to. write. it in this case it's very unclear whether they leading brands. because it does put pressure on china russia likely. to the security council to be much more well we've heard from. the de facto leader aung san suu kyi who's faced global criticism for not standing up more for the revenge of his supporters say that she has little control of on the actions and recent social media posts by cinci suggest that she blames meddling from
a border for worsening divisions she said hate narrative from outside the country have driven the two communities for the pot so if we take what she's saying about this which is consistent with what she said since the military crackdown began mr temple let me come back to you you know how likely is it that the perpetrators all of these crimes will be held to account when this is the sort of narrative coming from the country's leader. well barry i'm right and i think the comments that she. was all in the situation where it's clearly driven by. page. by many people who are. making trouble every military but certainly. she's. very much in the wrong.
place. pretty much. and i want to talk more about the repatriation because as we've said you know various countries and organizations are continuing to talk about it mr tone can i believe there's something like a hundred and twenty thousand. living in the. camps one of the conditions like in those camps and what the one hundred who in bangladesh now if they have a repatriated what they be living in the same source of calves and facing the same conditions. for me as i am receiving information from the ground every day this is quite clear there will be the same situation these rohingya are when they are effect treated back that's why i mentioned earlier nobody want to return to it if you do camps at all sort of know what you want to return to prison camps at all you
know this row here are people one hundred and twenty thousand in the sea to a it's been a kind of temporary but still there is no talk of origin a return to the ability as you know they are not proper getting proper and you know education and other health access at all that's why many rohingya fly many. you know by board the flight from these refugee camps you know this is barmy it's government and military says democratically destroying our community that's why we call it a general site you know we need to see also you know like kofi annan recombination commission already. calling for to close these i.d.p. camps are still we have not seen any positive and implementation on that so the. politic or willingness from burma top military to annul de government from also so good there is no such a hope for the rohingya i can see there is no policy to us rowing a has changed
nothing has changed instead situation is getting was so that's why we are calling here as their own india we know we need international protection too when drawing a repatriated back to burma without international proof protection these throwing up will face must atrocity against attorneys and i'm going to drag that isn't of them seventeen i mean he's not been i and that. mr snow said the international protection even be focusing on those one hundred twenty thousand that are living and camps for the u.n. start would then. absolutely you know there have been avoidable deprivations in those internment camps and they are internment camps there are more than twenty internment camps in five different townships in rakhine state and there are as you mentioned elizabeth more than one hundred twenty thousand men women and children who are confined to those camps
they're denied freedom of movement many of them are denied access to livelihoods their health needs maternal mortality is a very serious issue in those camps so there does need to be unfettered humanitarian access to those areas but more importantly you know it's really not sensible to be talking about returning refugees to recline state while the meum our government is confining more than one hundred twenty thousand to internment camps so those camps do need to be deconstructed as the anon commission recommended and those individuals and families living in those camps have a right to return and to rebuild their homes and they deserve reparations on top of that but unfortunately right now there are no indicators from the b.m.r. sorties that that's going to happen any time soon and mr temple you know one aspect of the story that is often overlooked is how all of this is impacting the many people of color and beyond that they sees themselves who are already one of the
most impoverished people in the world i think nearly a set of them live an extreme policy so what impact has some at least seven hundred thousand coming across the border had on people in that part of. what is the devastation. it causes the. tree. well it's a very poor. place it's very severely barred expand it. why it's. and it's great a little loose. since they were dramatically for. so many who are especially russians i must dismiss i think bangladesh is spending something like a million dollars a day to sustain its own relief and security efforts where is this money coming from well right now there are huge shortfalls among the international aid
organizations in terms of the the amount of resources that they need to provide even vaisakhi aid to the refugee population and you know bangladesh has done. a really great service to the ranger community to you know except the refugee population i was on the border when tens of thousands of people were pouring across and i could see the border guards going out of their way to ensure that refugees could make their way to a secure and safe place and i think that need to be acknowledged however there are other things happening on the ground in the camps and aid groups are having a difficult time doing their work due to some arbitrary restrictions that are being imposed by various authorities so i think the bangladesh authorities need to stay vigilant to ensure that the aid organizations that are operating there can work closely with revenge of communities to to provide. gentlemen we don't have very
long left in the program and the last question to all of you the u.n. secretary general antonio tears is going to be in the region and beyond that they should in a couple of days to assess the severity of the crisis and what needs to be done what do you think needs to happen to to support the refugees living in bonn the days to support the bond that they she's themselves and to ensure that if a petri ation does happen it is not forced and does not send the russian jet back into harm's way missed its own can let me start with you. yes great to see he's busy it into the. cams in next week that is very good first thing what i want to say we would like to see he has a roving eye you know the u.n. a.c.r. . u.n. a.c.r. myanmar government and u.n. d.p. agreement there is he said. there is no transparency on that agreement we
asked the rohingya as a big teams as a refugee is they did not consult with any representative of this community this is very very disturbing and i do not think this is totally you know. it is totally not. it's really not i don't see this is this would walk because you know rohingya they want to be consulted with the u.n. a c.r. sale and for more transparency and they need to see. mr template what about you. running. through. greece seriously.
and mr smith. i agree with mr temple i agree with mr tin can in addition to that i would just add that it's absolutely essential that the secretary general send a very clear message to perpetrators and me and more that this type of behavior is completely unacceptable and the perpetrators will be held accountable this message of accountability is absolutely essential but beyond that there needs to be action and so we would also like to see the secretary general apply pressure to the u.n. security council to refer the situation to the criminal international criminal court and mr turn can just last the you know so much of this has been caused by the fact that the russian just don't have legal rights as citizens in myanmar has anything been done has any action being taken by the government there to give them more legal status or protection though we didn't see.
anything from the government side at all because you meant by barbara means government right yes you know burmese government this been a systematic prosecution going on since matrices due to you know after nine hundred seventy eight we have to in you know of many operations against rohingya so. what i can see here is we need to see the solution from not inside burma at all because as a whole burma you know us do you go by us d.p. party and the government of military security flaws police for us nobody want to see rule he has a citizen unfortunately even though we have glorious pacifist abolishment. they don't recall the nice us so the solution will come from international level so we need international community protection and you know also when you have secretary general because it we need to see you know very near future i don't think this or if we do will return to burma at all so as
a counter act of this when bomb his government and military destroy you know a community we need to counteract to rebuild to empire our community in refugee camps or out of the way we can move forward you know because we need protection. i'm afraid i will run out of time to building others need to be done thank you very much for your time there is just one can and geneva matthew smith and kuala lumpur and robert templer in boston and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website dot com and to further discussion to go to our facebook page that facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter i had a list at a.j. and five story from the end of the problem and the whole team here i for now.

a war against israel on two fronts. after three years in power egyptian president anwar sadat had grown tired of peace initiatives that seemed to be going nowhere. we don't fear mediators has not been successful and sort of and the united states was the main supporter of the surge so it was clear that if you want to solve the problem you would have to do two things either go to war. or try to convince the americans to move into. two weeks into the war and with the opposing forces locked in a stalemate and richeson just arrived in moscow. is goal was to agree a u.n. ceasefire acceptable to egypt soviet allies.
the russians had to. for the russian jews it was acceptable so we had to rewrite it in history and. showed up from the. right again. we push it to the next morning. within two days the draft of un security council resolution three three eight had been accepted by both the soviets and the americans. but instead of returning direct to washington kissinger made a stopover in tel aviv for a few hours. that's off to news twenty second of october he would give his blessing to israeli plans to violate a cease fire even before the dawn. on the sit for the toba nine hundred seventy three the egyptians mounted
